Size-ist Culture

How will we ever teach our children,
to accept their bodies and themselves,
if they are constantly shamed and alienated,
by the sizing available on the shelves?

Many retailers now offer a range,
of sizes available in their designs,
yet so many stores neglect to include them,
offering only for you to purchase online.

It saddens me to think they are happy,
to cater only for those who fit into their mould,
leaving so many of us feeling neglected,
and left completely out in the cold.

In a world where it’s encouraged to be accepting,
of all people regardless of their differences,
it’s still normality for people of different sizes,
to be left feeling ostracised.
